As Tom T. Hall sang, I like beer. It usually does make me a jolly good, albeit fatter, fellow. But the folks at Fido and their partners at Lipman Brothers invite you to take your affection up a notch with their "I Love Beer!" tasting event next Wednesday Oct. 20t at 7 p.m. From the official invite:

Your love for beer will grow as we taste six beers accompanied by light food from Fido.
Victory Golden Monkey
BBC Bourbon Barrel Stout
Terrapin Hop Karma
Point Cascade Pale Ale
Stone Levitation Ale
Atwater Vanilla Java Porter

$15 per person, plus tax and tip


Rumours East is teaming up with the president of the local Slow Food chapter, Robin Riddell, at 6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 17 for a Fall Wine and Dine.

Reservations required, so call 262-5346. This menu looks like a winner:

Apricot Stilton cheese plate
Shrimp 'n' grits

Autumn salad
Butternut squash soup with goat cheese crostini

It definitely sounds like a meal you won't want to rush through.
